2021 Buick Envision Vs. 2021 Acura RDX

Compare the 2021 Buick Envision and the 2021 Acura RDX

If you are on the hunt for a luxury compact SUV to be your new vehicle for daily drives, you have likely come across the 2021 Buick Envision and the 2021 Acura RDX. As both SUVs stand out from the crowd, it is hard to discern each vehicle's advantages over the other. Please leave it to us to point out each vehicle's key differences so you can more readily decide which would fit your lifestyle better.


When it comes to pure power around Newtown Square, the Envision rolls ahead of the RDX. The Envisions Turbo ECOTEC engine produces 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, which matches up to the horsepower the RDX produces. Ride quality is fairly equal in both vehicles. The RDX delivers engaging, precise handling, and body roll around corners and turns is minimal. The same can easily be said for the Envision, as it features all-wheel drive and a smooth-shifting nine-speed automatic transmission. However, the Envision features more capability-driven features, letting it pull ahead.

Technology Features

For technology, the Envision pushes out ahead as well. It comes standard with an 8-inch display, Bluetooth, four USB ports, a seven-speaker stereo system, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and HD and satellite radio. That is not to say the RDX is not packed with technology. It just does not stack up to the Envisions long list of standard features that work seamlessly on its driver friendly infotainment system.


And when it comes to style, both vehicles are neck and neck. The RDX is refined, comfortable, and well-built. It features soft-quality materials throughout the entire cabin, and it boasts sportier features. Similarly, the Envision is redesigned for 2021 and is considerably more upscale than the previous generation. This leaves the Envision as the overall winner against the RDX.
